In this species, as in W. jtfadagascarietisis and alata, the lateral foliacedus pro^
cesses on the petioles break off spoutaueonsly, leaving a circular scar on the stem.
On the petioles of the youngest leaves they are occasionally somewhat persistent*
and at the apex of the branch there is a sheathing bract, (evidently a dilated petiole,
as it occasionally has the lamina developed,) in which the terminal bud is enclosed..

Griffith's specimens are very imperfect, but correspond in everything with Jack's
description. They are not in fruit ; we have therefore talcen the character of the
seeds from the Comp. Bot. Mag. Jack describes the peduncles as. axillary, bat in
Griffith's specimens they are evidently leaf-opposed, and' only appear axillary in
consequence of several leaves growing close together 'towards the extremity of the
brauchlet.

This appears a very distinct species. Probably Roxburgh's fiillenia repanda
is the same, but his description is so imperfect, that the point cannot be deter-
mined with certainty without, the Inspection of specimens. The locality assigned
by Roxburgh to- Bis plant- is Hlndostan,—that is to say, probably the mountains of
Bchar, the vegetation of which is analogous to that of the hilly country of Maiaor and
thePekhar
